The officers developed their leadership skills while interacting with each other and building camaraderie. Many great ideas were turned into plans for the year as the officers worked on the chapter’s annual Program of Activities.
The 2016-2017 officers are: Clayton Whitley, president; Ali Lopez, vice president; Kenna Waters, secretary; Colt Henderson, treasurer; Courtney Barber, leadership coordinator; Jordan O’Berry, reporter; Leigh Ann Ard, historian; Hunter Waters, chaplain; Benito Lopez, student advisor; Gabion Hardy, sentinel and Hinkley Hood.
The officers worked hard, but also took time for recreation by visiting the St. Simons Pier and surrounding shops. They are excited about the coming year and are looking forward to leading the chapter to new heights.
Accompanying the officers on the trip were FFA advisors Dr. Lynn Barber, Danny Bartlett and Jay Bennett.
With more than 37,000 members, the Georgia FFA Association is the third largest state association in the nation. The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, changed its name in 1988 to reflect the growth and diversity of agriculture.
The FFA’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
